Back light on iPod touch doesn't work

The back light on iPod touch doesn't work. I took it to the iPod store and they want $150 to fix it--more than half of what I paid!

    Have the same problem, using 1.1.5 firmware if I tap the sleep button it will come on for a second and also if I go to brightness and turn all the way down and then move like 10-15% up it will flash for a second again.

Tip

Ipod Touch vs. V -Touch


I would go for the ipod touch. Although it cost about $150 more than the V-Touch it last longer. For example first two days of owning my V-Touch the screen stopped working and it wouldn't turn on.My son brought his to school and when he got home there was a huge dent in the back plastic. Also they are very iffy a lot of videos won't work on V-touches and music and images. Although for the ipod touch you will be using itunes a lot adding more expenses they are more durable and rugged and have way better screen quality and sound quality. But if you are going for a gift for a younger kid ages 7-9 the V-Touch is exactly what you're looking for, a fun media player that won't last for ever but will last until you buy a more advanced (higher priced) media player. So if you are looking for something that will last for a a year and a half go for the V-Touch if you are looking for a long time commitment go for the ipod Touch.

My Ipod Touch 4G 8Gb has a screen malfunction in which the screen turns incredibly bright and the bottom half displays a faint copy of the top half. The whole thing basically looks like an old film fliter...


It is possible that your display is faulty or the connector has become loose. To fix this, check whether your iPod is covered under warranty, if not, you'll have to pay, but regardless, you should take it to your local Apple store to get it fixed, immediately. If you have just purchased the iPod, return to the dealer and ask for a replacement.

How much to fix ipod touch screen and where


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you receive this. You want to know how much to fix the touch screen and where to fix it? I want this solution to benefit you as much as possible. Having to pay for someone to fix your iPod touch screen should be your last result. I'm tell you some options you can try that may save you a few dollars and having someone to fix the iPod touch screen. I don't if this is the problem, but the touch screen may be locked. Automatically, the iPod touch locks when there has been no activity for a certain amount of time. To unlock the touch screen, press and hold the Home button or the On/Off/Sleep/Wake button which is located at the top of your device, and then drag the slider. If you want to set the amount of time before Auto-Lock activates, press Settings, General, Auto-Lock; then set your preferred time. If that doesn't fix the problem, you can try a system reset. To do this, press and hold the Home and On/Off/Sleep/Wake buttons together for approximately 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears on your screen. If this doesn't work, you can take your iPod Touch to your local Apple Retail store and have an Apple technician work on it for you. There will be a fee for diagnostic services. You can also contact Apple Technical Support or Online Service Assistant. For more contact information, go to this website (http://www.apple.com/support/contact/). I hope the problem is just a screen lock up and if you have to get a repair or replacement, it won't burn a hole in your pocket. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems and requests. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post.

I have an iTouch, how do I know what applications - free or paid - will work with iTouch - I see iPod, iPhone, iPad, but not iTouch....thanks


Generally in the itunes store under requirements it tell you that the application is compatible with either iphone, ipod touch or ipad. You should note that the ipod touch is what you seem to call the itouch.

Home button on my itouch suddenly wont work


This has to goto the apple store to be diagnosed. They have software that tells them of all errors your iPod is posting. Most likely, the iPod has an issue and they will find it. Best of Luck.

IPod touch freezes


Hello! This problem is if you messed around with your iPod Touch a lot like hacking it. I hacked it before so I restored it so now it is very good! It is now version 1.1.2. Okay, if you want to fix this problem, hold the home button and the power button for 20-30 seconds until a yellow exclamation mark shows up to tell you to connect to iTunes, this worked for my friend's screwed up iPod Touch. Try this method okay? After you connected it to iTunes, check for updates right away and there you go!

Hope this works!
